Sickly By Fate, Hero By Choice
Joe Vallone was a robotics expert with severe hemophilia. When he is fatally injured in a car accident, everyone he knows is thrust into a world of deception and treason. The truth about his survival sparks an escalating conflict between his aunt's Hippocratic oath and the military contractors chartered to restrict nanotechnology at any cost. Can Joe help bring nanotech to a diseased and impoverished world, or will the the attempt claim his life.

Great Suspenseful Read!
I read this book in the mornings before I would leave for work and there were many days where it kept me from getting to work on time because I had to find out what happened to Joe Vallone and all of his friends and enemies. I'm really not a big fan of science fiction, but this book was much closer to reality than typical science fiction. It points out that the current state of the world can lead to horrible places. When nanotechnology meets terrorism meets over-reaching law enforcement meets patents, nothing good is going to come of it. This book was a great read and I recommend it to everyone.
